Kappa doesn’t charge a per-transaction fee. There are processing fees from our bank partners and a small surcharge added to the daily exchange rate to cover our own costs. This will typically result in fees as low as 0% for local transfers, and approximately 2.5% for cross-border transfers. All fees are displayed to you before making a transaction. Kappa is committed to 100% transparency.
You can connect one or multiple bank accounts to your Kappa wallet (called “linked accounts”) or make a cash deposit at one of our partner locations.
In the future you will be able to link up other payment methods including mobile money, credit cards, debit cards, and other types of accounts.
